Ida Lupino's "THE HITCH-HIKER" (1953)




Sixth Lupino feature and first "Film noir" made by a woman ever. Hardly sentimental and sharp edged thriller with very modern filming. The paralysed "eyelid" thing is very clever too.

Subject: Movie tough guy takes back-seat.
Not bad. Tense moments. Cool cars. Two guys going fishing get abducted at gun-point by ruthless, murdering hitchhiker on-the-run played by William Talman. Talman is best known as Perry Mason's nemesis, District Attorney, Hamilton Burger. Disappointing, as I had expected movie tough guy Edmund O'Brien to cold-cock this bum early on. O'Brien's character and his fishing bud ride endlessly through the Mexican desert going-along-to-get-along, until the cops catch up. Then O'Brien takes a well-deserved swing at the handcuffed creep. Watch it.
